Chickie Card


Emma at Creative Time for me is having a Cricut-less challenge for her Throwback Thursday Challenge. Since my boyfriend bought me my Expression Cricut machine about 2 or so years ago, the majority of my projects have had cuts from my cricut, so I really wanted to enter this challenge to try something fun and different. 

Close up of the cute little Chickies:)    
For the stamp I used My Creative Time "Hello Spring with Layering Egg Dies." Ok so I don't have any special art/stamping markers (at least not yet), so I used what I had (Crayola markers). I really enjoyed using stamps and coloring cute images, I definitely want to try this again, so I am going to look into getting some Copic Markers or maybe some of those new Tim Holtz Distress Markers (Hopefully a birthday gift, lol).  

For the purple paper, I used the swirl egg shape stamp in the "Hello Spring with Layering Egg Dies" and  heat embossed it to give the paper a swirl background (loved how that came out). I finally got the courage to use my sewing machine on one of my projects (yay me! lol).

I will be entering my card in:
Creative Time for Me: Throwback Thursday Cricut-less Challenge
My Craft Spot: Monday Challenge #47- For the Birds

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment:)

Peace, Love, & Cricut Hug's!
